A Palestinian woman gives and gives..
"INSYAALLAH, WE'LL MEET IN PARADISE," said Ghada, a school teacher I met in Gaza during Yayasan Salam's mission earlier this month. Ghada had the opportunity to visit Malaysia some years ago on a study tour. The young lady probably typifies a Palestinian woman who knows deeply the meaning of struggle, sacrifice, love, life and death. In an interview in Gaza and acting as our interpreter in one of our field trips, Ghada speaks fluent English and helped us understand local issues better. The interview was recorded and I'm reproducing part of it here. It has better impact when you actually hear her words and see her expression yourself.
